Introduced in response to the successful Ford Ranchero, Chevrolet’s first generation El Camino was based on the Brookwoods wagon with bold styling derived from the contemporary Bel Air. It was also more successful on the showroom floor than the competition from Dearborn and was offered with an array of powerplants and trim levels to match any taste and budget. It was removed from the market after sales slowed, but would return again in 1964.  

The Motorcar Offered
  This stunning original El Camino was purchased from the family of the original owner in 1990 with 65,000 miles showing on the odometer. Purchased new by the proverbial little old lady, she drove the car on a vacation to California during the Sixties and the windshield still bears evidence from her trip in the form of decals from Death Valley and Yosemite National Park. With the exception of a small repaint to repair some vandalism in the 70s, this time warp vehicle still wears its original paint and interior trim. Carefully maintained and serviced, it is reported to run and drive excellently. It is rare to find a first generation El Camino in this condition, making it a sound investment to treasure that is almost certain to appreciate.  

Estimate:  $20,000-23,000
